I have miles with Lufthansa that will expire on December 31, 2013. I do not want to lose them. What can I do to save them? I understand that getting a Miles and More Credit Card can help but only if I have had it for at least 3 months before the expiration date of the miles. The problem is that my miles expire in less than 3 months. Can miles be transferred from one * alliance airline to another? I also have United.
